Too much like Daddy's name?

DH is Sebastian - nothing I can do about it! wink

We've both always loved Tristan and although we have another option, we always end up coming back to it.

Now with three weeks to go, I just saw the two names side by side and I fear wonder if they're too similar?

Am I being silly? For what it's worth DH is Seb to nearly everyone but his mother anyway.

Go for it. They are definitely different names.

I like both. smile

Not too similar at all.

Think they are fine - wouldn't worry about it.

Can I ask does your husband's name get shortened at all? We love Sebastian as a name, but not keen on Seb which we worry he would end up being called?

Yes all will be fine. They will be Seb and Tris.

I think they sound just fine together.

Thanks everyone.

VAB - he is Seb, but it's by choice. His mother calls him by his full name, but in most cases he introduces himself as Seb. His brother was always Mat, but then decided he wanted to be Mathew and nearly everyone calls him by his full name now. I think people will follow your lead! smile

Tristan doesn't sound like Sebastian. My cousin's son is called Tristan ('Tris') and he's a wonderful young man - with a great name

VAB - I know a Sebastian who gets called Baz. I would prefer Seb myself, though!

absolutely fine together

I don't think they are too alike so I would use the name.

Tristan is a lovely name that isn't often used nowadays (I think).

Good strong name!
